The rider was severely injured and was transported to hospital, where he died of his injuries overnight. The 42-year-old driver of the pickup truck did not suffer any injuries and remained on scene after the collision.

The investigation into the crash had the roads partially closed to traffic for about five hours, with police opening the roads again at nearly 10 p.m.

“We offer our condolences to the family and friends of the deceased man,” the Abbotsford Police Department said in a news release.

APD major crime detectives and collision reconstruction officers continue to investigate the crash. Sgt. Judy Bird said officers have received conflicting reports about how it occurred, and it will take some time to sort out the exact circumstances.
